The National Coordinator APGA Media Warriors Forum, Evang Chinedu Obigwe, on Wednesday alleged that the withdrawal of Governor Willie Obiano’s ADC by the Inspector General of police, Mr. Ibrahim Idris on Tuesday was aimed to rig and actualize electoral fraud on Saturday by the ruling federal political party.
In a press release issued to Vanguard, Obigwe said “it has dawned on APC that for their party to win the forthcoming November 18th election under free and fair circumstances can be likened to an elephant passing through the eye of a needle and in this regard they came up with a rigging script which they are now executing”, he said.
Read the full release bellow:
“The withdrawal of Governor Willie Obiano’s ADC is aimed at actualizing APC rigging plot. It has dawned on APC that their party winning the forthcoming November 18th election under free and fair circumstances can be likened to an elephant passing through the eye of a needle and in this regard they came up with a rigging script that they are now executing.
“ APC rigging script includes (1) withdrawal of Governor Obiano’s senior security aides (2) militarization of Anambra State to scare prospective voters away for the purpose of rigging the election without resistance (3) Transfer of Anambra State Commissioner of Police and the deployment of Kogi CP an APC State, imo State CP an APC State, Kano State CP also an APC State and the DIG operations force headquarters (4) Relocation of 3 APC Governors to Anambra State to ensure that the 3 CP’s deployed for the execution of APC rigging plot will accomplish their assignment.
“The 3 CP’s will be deployed to the 3 Senatorial zones of the State and the 3 APC Governors that will relocate to the State before the election will also be deployed to the 3 Senatorial zones of the State to ensure the cooperation of the security agents towards the actualization of APC rigging plot.
My advice to Ndi Anambra is to rise in defence of their democratic franchise by ensuring that their vote counts in the Saturday governorship election.
“Rat does not eat the food of a vigilant man and that in this regard the task of ensuring that the right thing is done in Anambra State on November 18th is a patriotic one.
“IG’s excuse that the reason why they withdrew Governor Obiano’s ADC is because of the ugly experience of an unnamed Governor ADC that was caught by the Military aiding rigging in his State is not tenable rather it is an after thoughts story that was cooked up to cover APC rigging plot.
“I urge President Muhammadu Buhari to do the right thing in Anambra State on November 18th because his integrity is at stake and that his failure to do the right thing will affect his 2019 2nd term Re-election bid.
“On my own part if President Muhammadu Buhari lives up to his promise of delivering a free and fair election in Anambra State, I will vote for him in 2019.
“Governor Obiano’s peaceful disposition should not be seen as an act of cowardice because if APC led Federal government goes ahead with their rigging plot the people of the State will revolt against them in defence of their democratic right.
“I warn APC Governors that are planning to relocate to Anambra State for the purpose of rigging the election to perish such evil thoughts because the people of the State are prepared to nip their evil plots in the bud.
“Since they are not eligible voters in Anambra State, they don’t have any business being in Anambra State on Election Day.
“The only thing that will guarantee peaceful coexistence in the State is free and fair election that will ensure that the vote of Anambra electorates count on November 18th.”
